Topic: Question for the southpaws
A question (may be a stupid one, but just out of curiosity) from a righty.
How/why did you learn to play a guitar left handed? Seems to me that the first time you picked up a guitar it was likely to have been a right-handed guitar, only because they are more common. So that's an assumption which may or may not be true in your particular case.
Nothing feels "normal" the first time you do it. The first time I picked up a guitar, both my left and right hands were awkward, but I learned to play right handed mainly because that's the way the guitar was made. Had my father (whose guitar I started to play on) owned a left-handed guitar, I could easily see myself as having learned to play lefty.
Assuming your first encounter was with a right-handed guitar, instead of learning to play it right-handed, what made you decide that it needed to be flipped around?
